So I take a right hand turn too tight and run my side over a granite corner and really dent in the steel side bottom of the car between the front and rear passenger doors. Front door sticks a bit on the bottom corner but opens just fine. Passenger door opens normally.
One place wants to bang it out and repaint most of that side. Price: $7000
The other place said they need to cut it out and put new steel in. Price $14000
I will use my insurance but who do I believe in this case. The car drives perfectly as the dent is minor and all electronics and other systems are normal.
Any comments or suggestions? Or go for a 3rd estimate... Both were Tesla approved.
